“With Toni, we didn’t have an issue and we have been working together for a few years,” Azpilicueta said.
“That news from outside, we’re not sure so that’s why Tammy and myself we both tweeted. Everything is fine and I can say that didn’t happen. We didn’t have any issues and we don’t have.
“We always work together. As other players, we have sometimes our discussions, normal in football. When results are not going well, everybody has more tension around but nothing further than this.
“Normal footballers like normal workers in their offices or with other jobs with pressure who have to deliver and nothing further than this. There is not an issue, we are so committed.
“We saw that [in the past] and sometimes when a manager leaves, people can blame some players but we are players, we are humans and we always want to do the best for the club, for the manager.
“That’s our job, that’s our passion and obviously we are not happy when results are not going well and sometimes, yes, we have seen the reaction from the fans but there is no issue. We are all together working.
